‘What Happened to Monday’ A Spine Tingling Thriller -
I haven’t watched many movies on Netflix. Some of them sound good, yet I have never had much interest in them before. Some of them have even looked not that great. I was intrigued when I saw the trailer for What Happened to Monday though. I was able to watch it early and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for What Happened to Monday here:
In a not so distant future, where overpopulation and famine have forced governments to undertake a drastic “One Child Policy,” seven identical sisters live a hide-and-seek existence pursued by the Child Allocation Bureau. The Bureau, directed by the fierce Nicolette Cayman (Glenn Close), enforces a strict family-planning agenda that the sisters outwit by taking turns assuming the identity of one person: Karen Settman (Noomi Rapace). Taught by their grandfather (Willem Dafoe) who raised and named them — Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday — each can go outside once a week as their common identity, but are only free to be themselves in the prison of their own apartment. That is until, one day, Monday does not come home…
I really liked What Happened to Monday. The film starts strong, and keeps this momentum going right to the end. It has a great cast and tells a really good story. Noomi Rapace steals the show, making each sibling seem the same, but having subtle differences between them. The world is a mess, and it seems only one organization can save the planet. If you are a fan of any of these actors, then this is a film you won’t want to miss. If you want to learn more about What Happened to Monday click on this website.
